plan for america. but let's remember the pelosi plan for jobs. an $8 billion stimulus plan that caused unemployment to go from 8.5% to over 10%. let's remember the pelosi plan for automobiles. cash for clunkers. a $3 billion program that even the democrats agreed did not work and it was killed after three weeks. the pelosi plan for fiscal discipline, $1.4 trillion debt this year, the highest in history. and let's not forget the pelosi plan for national security, dithering in afghanistan. now we have the pelosi plan for health care. it kills small businesses and jobs, it raises taxes, it raises premiums, it cuts medicare, it takes away your current health care coverage and spends $1 trillion. vote no on the pelosi plan for a government takeover of health care and join the bipartisan members of this congress who plan to do so and promote an alternative which is far better. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. rangel: thank you, madam speaker. i yield for
wheelchairs, taxing pacemakers, taxing hearing aids. this bill is not right for america, it's not right for families, it's not right for small businesses and it's not right for seniors. we need real solutions. let's focus on reducing the costs, maybe, offer tax incentives, enact medical liability reform, allow people to buy insurance across state lines. these solutions bring lower costs and bring health care to those who really need it. mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect, though, of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom, mr. speaker, the house is not in order. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is correct. the house will be in order. mr. reichert: mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom came through great sacrifice. the sacrifice of men and women throughout history of this great nation so that we could choose and live a free life. this bill takes away that freedom, the freedom to choose the health care that's right for you and your family, this bill takes away that freedom requiring every american to
: madam speaker, i rise today in strong support of h.r. 3962, the affordable health care for america act. choices regarding health care are some of the most personal decisions we make. the ability to choose one's doctor and decide on a course of treatment with one's physician is an american right and so is access to affordable health care. most of us can agree that our current health insurance system is broken. the cost of insurance has skyrocket nd recent years, leaving many families struggling to struggle or go without. others are denied insurance due to pre-existing conditions. saddling them with terrible medical debt when they need treatment. these treatments, along with other factors, madam speaker, have led to nearly 50 million americans without any health insurance. 71,000 live in my district. i urge the passage of this bill. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from new jersey reserves. the gentleman from minnesota is recognized. mr. kline: at this time, i'm very pleased to yield one minute to the gentlelady from north carolina, former member o
-- america is in serious problems with respect to health care. virtually every other developed country has a better system than we do. ours is costly. in places it's ineffective. it's deeply troubled. the time has come to really see that people who have no insurance can get insurance. now, the good part about this bill is that it is structured so that it is phased in. so that over time we can watch it. we can change it. for example, this next year, small business tax credits go in place and $5 billion is available for insurance for those who have been denied because of preconditions. so these people will be able to get insurance right away. things like the exchange and the public option come on line on 2014. so the bill, in a sense, is incremental. we can watch it. we can change it. the important thing is that we debate it. there be a free flow of amendments. that some will pass, some will fall. the bill will go to conference. it has to be reconciled with the house bill. so we're at the beginning now of what is a great national and key debate. >> senator lieberman, let me pick up with wher
amendment soon of the welcome to a brand-new hour of america's news headquarters. >> it's been going on all day long. we have been keeping our eyes on it. all eyes right now on capitol hill house members debating this bill. it started earlier today. a full vote on the legislation is set to happen a little later on this evening. we thought maybe it would be sooner than later, but looks like -- they like it talk. i don't know if you're aware of that. they do like to talk. the president is issuing a last minute appeal for the overhaul at the white house earlier today. he did that earlier. watch this. >> the bill that the house has produced will provide stability and security for americans who have insurance, quality, affordable options for those who don't, and lower costs for american families and american businesses. and as i've insisted from the beginning, it is a bill that is fully paid for and will actually reduce our long-term federal deficit. this bill is change that the american people urgently need. >> there are some america does not need. the house also debating an amendment to ban fe
in america today. that massive change is because we have already turned over to the federal government most of our financial systems for them to be managing it. so they control our purse. this government controls the purse of america. and we have done that this year. it's there. we bailed people out. we are now voting members of financial organizations and businesses, like automobile firms. now we want to control the american people's purse. now we have to say to ourselves, well, what's going to happen when we do, when we create this great system, how do we know what it's going to look like? i want to use this, quite frankly but it's not fair because it's one-sided and this document is two-sided. but this document printed in smaller font is two-sided. here's what we have in the way of what the government needs to create for a health care plan. this is the substitute, the people's idea. it's the difference, ladies and gentlemen, between liberty and government. and you know, this week a whole lot of people came an awful long way so they could express their opinion and they were called radical
bankrupting america. guest: i think that the viewer's concerns reflect the concern that is widespread in the united states about national sovereignty, about control, and i do think that those concerns clash with the need to confront the problem. if in fact we do not address this problem in international and comprehensive way, how in the world do we address it? it may well be that the listeners was not believe in global warming, in which case -- it may well be that the listener does not believe in global warming, in which case he has nothing to worry about. if you believe that the emissions from china, india, and the united states contribute to global warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host:ueueueueueueueueueueueueueh warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host: dallas, roger, good morning. caller: good morning. man-made climate change, which which we have called global warming, has not be

detainees from guantanamo bay to america. in illinois and one democratic senator from the estate says that the move could create thousands of jobs. a republican congressman from illinois who is running said it would undermine national security. you will hear from both lawmakers in two 0.5 minutes. gregg: the government calls them the most dangerous people on the planet. the president has promised to close guantanamo bay, so the question is, what should the president do? many of the suspected terrorists could wind up in the thomson correctional facility in northwestern illinois. >> we have an opportunity to bring thousands of good paying jobs to illinois when we need them the most. an opportunity that we will not mess. gregg: that plan has critics very upset. here's why. opponents of the plan claim that it would make the region less safe and a potential target for terrorists. >> as you raise the profile of your community in this jihadi world, the benefits that they see in attacking your city increases. with it the busiest airport in the world and the tallest building in north america,

the affordable health care for america act. the bill would more accurately be entitled, the big spending, big taxing, big entitlement, pelosi plan for big government takeover of america's health care act. despite house majority leader steny hoyer claiming that during their press conference that the health care bill was part of an open and transparent process to reform our health care system, the american people were oddly prohibited from even attending the liberal democrat's pub less -- publicity rally on the steps of the capitol. mr. speaker, this really isn't surprising considering the democrats habit of frozing -- freezing republicans out of the process. mr. speaker, the new pelosi plan looks and sounds starkly similar to the democrat's first attempts at a big government takeover of health care, h.r. 3200. that is because essentially it is the same big government socialist nonsense speaker pelosi introduced months ago. the same plan that caused nearly millions -- cause literally millions of american to speak out against it through letters, petitions, protests and by showing up to register
